Tesla’s Supercharger network is known around the world for being super-fast, super-reliable, and, if you’ve got a Tesla, the easiest way to refuel on a long-distance trip.
But it also makes uses of Tesla’s own proprietary charging standard, something Tesla has offered to other automakers but which no other manufacturer has decided to work with yet.
So when the New York Public Service Commission began a new incentive program to offer electric car charging station operators cheaper electricity rates for rapid charging stations that support both CHAdeMO and CCS quick charging standards, Tesla wasn’t happy.
It says the NYPSC is discriminating against it — and when it first set up its rapid charging network, there were a series of good reasons it decided to create its own standard.
Is Tesla being discriminated against? Should it be forced to install at least some vehicle-agnostic charging infrastructure? Or is there another solution that could prove very lucrative to Tesla while remaining complaint with the spirit of the incentive program?
